I am with Curve since May 2017 and it is one of the best financial tool introduced in the last years. It provides even more benefits and flexibility with underlying cards in different currencies from different EU countries, if you have them
AMEX support was great but it did not last long and I would not expect to see AMEX on my Curve ever again in the future.
Mastercard & Visa cards are fully supported and I have never had issues with using them. The only drawback is a lack of up to date pictures of some of the underlying cards.
Diners Club cards are not supported at all. DC doesn’t offer private cards in all EU countries and this includes UK market which is why Dc support isn’t on a priority list on Curve’s roadmap.
Initial Curve card spending limits aren’t relatively high but can be increased in the future. Enhanced limit for ATM withdrawal of £1000 or equivalent in different currency is more than enough. Once the limit is reached, Curve card cannot be used.
Go Back in Time is one of the unique and great features of Curve but I suppose it should be used only when really needed. It certainly generates additional costs for Curve. I would say, that an excessive use of Go Back in Time would have been treated as a system abuse.
Worldwide Travel Insurance and Electronic Gadget Insurance offered with Black/Metal subscriptions are OK, nothing exceptional. Travel insurance may be found cheaper elsewhere or get it with some credit cards for free.
Rental car collision damage waiver insurance - not yet available for non UK residents
Medical travel insurance - not yet available for non UK residents
Curve Rewards, Curve Cash etc. It’s always great to get some cashback for transactions made with your card.
Generally speaking, Curve is the only one card in my wallet along with my backup card on Google Play.
I think, once Black trial subscription is over I will jump on paid subscription to support Curve even more. It is fully worth it.
The Curve has definetly changed the game on the payment cards market.
My question is as follows: Would you imagine using all your bank cards without Curve now?
